Even a SMALL step

makes a BIG difference

Fundraise for PWS Research

Why fundraise for One SMALL Step?

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder, affecting 1 out of every 15,000 people. Being part of a small community, it is often difficult to spread awareness, and therefore raise funds. But having eager and dedicated people like you on our team ensures that although small, we are mighty, and together we will help better the lives of those living with PWS! Every dollar you raise through our One SMALL Step program goes directly to PWS related research, and continues to help us achieve our goal of eliminating the challenges of Prader-Willi Syndrome, one small step at a time.
